During the month of July, the West 29th Marketplace Merchants will be hosting a book drive to assist Reach Out and Read Colorado. Merchants are accepting new and gently used books for children ages birth to 17 years. All books donated will be given to Reach Out and Read Colorado, a local foundation that trains doctors and nurses to advise parents about the importance of reading aloud and prescribes books to children at wellness checkups. Many of the merchants will be offering discounts to customers who donate three or more books. West 29th Marketplace is located on 29th Avenue between Sheridan and Fenton Street and includes local favorites such as Wheat Ridge Poultry and Twisted Smoothie.
